Not everyone is a member of Facebook or has a Facebook account, so depending upon your privacy settings you may or may not be allowing everyone to view your notes. I’ve changed my settings to allow everyone to read my Louisiana Genealogy Blog Facebook page. I didn’t realize that my privacy settings on Facebook were set to “only my friends”. Now that the settings have changed, everyone should be able to read my Facebook pages.
Here is a post from Save Our Cemeteries that I would just love to attend. I love exhibits. The fact that this exhibit promotes the historical value of cemeteries is a plus plus, in my opinion.

Thursday, October 29, 2009
6:00pm – 8:00pm
The International House Hotel
221 Camp Street
New Orleans, LA

Save Our Cemeteries (SOC) is hosting its 18 Annual Cemeteryscape photography exhibit from October 29, 2009 through November 22, 2009. Cemeteryscape is designed to develop a public awareness and appreciation of the artistic and historic value of cemeteries. The exhibit will be on display at The International House Hotel, 221 Camp Street, New Orleans. An opening reception will be held at this location on Thursday, October 29th from 6-8 pm.

This is a FREE event, so you can spread the word to anyone who may be interested.

40% of proceeds from the sale of work will go directly to Save Our Cemeteries.
